We found a partner in crime! A soulmate! Our better half!*
We’d like to introduce our new BFF: GuideStar. We share a love of data and analysis, travel, sunsets, long walks on the beach… oops. I mean, commitment to data innovation and data distribution resulting in nonprofits making high-quality, data-informed decisions.
GuideStar is the world’s largest source of information for nonprofit organizations. Working together, we will create valuable tools, informed by data, for the nonprofit sector.
The first result of our collaboration is The Map of Opportunity, showing the distribution and concentration of philanthropy across the U.S. – and how to use the information to raise more money. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. It will change the way you think about how much you can raise for your organization.
“We strive to provide data and analysis to help nonprofits make better decisions,” said Adrian Bordone, vice president for strategic partnerships at GuideStar. “Our collaboration with The Room40 Group is a sensible step in this direction by strengthening fundraising strategy and execution.”
Partnering with GuideStar will raise the awareness of our work and help us build a community of nonprofit leaders who value data and learning from each other – which only makes our work better (and more fun). So, yes, we’re a bit smitten.
We look forward to sharing the results of our collaboration with you. Stay tuned!
Yours in pursuit of better decisions, faster,
Anna, Ben, George and Harleen
aka The Room40 Group
*Yes, that’s hyperbole. We don’t actually commit crimes. And we’re not leaving our spouses to run off with GuideStar. We’re working with GuideStar to promote great tools for nonprofits, informed by GuideStar’s data and our analysis. It’s a working relationship we all believe will improve the sector.
